"Jackie" is more of a curiosity than a good film and, like Camelot, its impact is fleeting and nebulous.

Features some nice performances and contains some strong material but, as a whole, the movie is too slow and too long to really work.

Another in a long line of movie adaptations of revered novels that lose something significant in their translation from page to screen.

"The Girl on the Train" doesn’t derail but it’s not the smoothest of rides.

"Snowden" could have been an important film. Sadly, unlike its subject, it’s unremarkable and easily forgotten.

It’s unfortunate the filmmakers aren't able to provide a sharper focus for a movie with too much plot for too short a running time.

Run Time: 1:54

MPAA Rating: "R" (Violence, Profanity, Drugs, Sexual Content)
Genre: Comedy/Drama
Director: Todd Phillips
Cast: Miles Teller, Jonah Hill, Ana de Armas, Kevin Pollak, Bradley Cooper

The lack of dynamism and depth in the characters hamstrings this production.

"Star Trek Beyond" is a Star Trek movie, although not an especially good one.

MPAA Rating: "PG-13" (Horror Action/Violence, Profanity)
Genre: Comedy/Horror
Director: Paul Feig
Cast: Melissa McCarthy, Kristen Wiig, Kate McKinnon, Leslie Jones, Chris Hemsworth

A mediocre horror/comedy that deserves neither high praise nor disparagement.

Run Time: 1:55
U.S. Release Date: 2016-07-01
MPAA Rating: "PG"
Genre: Fantasy/Adventure

Unlikely to excite the imagination (or the box office) in the way many of Spielberg’s classics have.
